The Lady Troopers will have a point to prove this upcoming PVL season.
After failing to register a single win in the 2022 PVL Reinforced Conference, the Philippine Army Lady Troopers are looking to bounce this upcoming season.
But even before the new season starts, the Lady Troopers already find themselves behind when it comes to preparations as a roster. That’s why outside hitter Royse Tubino is working double time to help the team out.
“Siguro kailangan ko mag-double time para sa teammates ko. Kailangan maging strong ang mentality so susunod naman 'yung mga bata sa akin. Siyempre gusto ko ma-share 'yung pagiging veteran ko,” said Tubino.
The 2023 PVL All-Filipino Conference will see the Lady Troopers without star Jovelyn Gonzaga, who is preparing for the 32nd Southeast Asian Games, and injured players Ging Balse-Pabayo and Jem Gutierrez.
Army will also be fielding in a new coach in Randy Fallorina, who is making his first head coaching stint, replacing KungFu Reyes.
Despite the challenges ahead, Tubino promises to be a reliable force for the Lady Troopers. "Lalaro lang ako nang maayos. Lalaro ako para sa team, para sa Army. Wala akong ine-expect para sa sarili, basta maglalaro ako nang maayos para sa Army."
